Safety Tips

 

How do I sell safely?

 

We have some tips to make sure you and your buyer making a safe trade and walk away happy:

 

Typical fraudulent buyer behavior

  • The buyer demands you send the item before they pay for it.
  • The buyer is keen to pay the asking price immediately, or even overpay. When it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. 
  • The buyer is from a foreign country or wants to buy the item for a relative.
  • Stick to the location agreed upon as much as possible because scammers like to take you to other unknown locations after the initial meeting. 

 

Meeting a buyer

  • Try to meet in person. We'd recommend trading locally for safe deals.
  • A buyer who offers you more money to deliver your item to them, might be a scammer, so you need to make sure you get paid first.
  • Try to meet in a public place like a shopping mall or petrol station. Whether you're meeting in a public place or even at your home, make sure you have a friend or family member with you. 

 

Making the exchange

  • As far as possible, only get paid in cash for your item.
  • If you accept a bank or cash transfer (ie. Wing or TrueMoney), make sure to check if the payment is received before handing over the item.
